    I think you have some problems with your Joy Stick. Or some wires burnt together somewhere. Most likely the truck side. Do you have another truck to try it on?:D

    If you don't have a spare controller to do a quick test with, do the following...

    1) Unplug your controller
    2) Turn the ignition on
    3) Take a jumper wire and jump the black and orange together in the truck side controller plug.

    Does the pump run with the jumper connected- yes or no?
